The FBI said they cut all ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in 2008 because of terrorist connection, but nevertheless, paid for a CAIR official to travel to Mali to say America discriminates against Islamicists through racial and religious profiling by law enforcement. This is not a one-time event. The Mali visits happened a second time!
One of the FBI's "top agent[s]" in Chicago spoke at an event moderated by a CAIR attorney and, according to The Investigative Project on Terrorism:
[the] State Department money also financed Walid's [Dawud Walid Executive Director of CAIR] trashing of American treatment of American Muslims. "Since the tragedy of September 11, 2001, American Muslims have been subjected to increased discrimination from racial and religious profiling by law enforcement, a rise in hate crimes, work place discrimination, to the recent trend of some citizens and elected officials protesting the construction of new mosques.
Late last year, an Imam named Luqman Ameen Abdullah was shot 21 times including twice in the back during a raid by law enforcement agencies based upon an investigation of his mosque, which ended up proving no links to terrorism or treason," Walid said in Bamako, Mali.
As he has done since the Abdullah shooting last October, Walid failed to tell his audience that Abdullah fired first as FBI agents moved in to arrest him. Four other people who did not fire as agents advanced were arrested unharmed. That went unmentioned, too...
The trip was organized by Michigan State University, Walid said, but funded by the federal government.The State Department needs a thorough cleaning. I blame George W. Bush for not taking on the task when he first took office. CAIR is a lie. Whatever they say, you can count on it being just the opposite. CAIR's presence in this country is an ongoing jihad.
